A huge hit for Stevie back in the 80′s, so successful that it was riding high on multiple charts all at the same time.
The infectious pace of the track has been said by Stevie to have been inspired by some of his fellow Motown friends from the 60′s, particularly Diana Ross and The Supremes. And with a listen and a little imagination, one could superimpose this as one of those girl-group songs, particularly in sound.
Also worth mentioning the fine voices of both Philip Bailey and the great Luther Vandross contributing the harmony “dut-da” vocals in addition to the female vocalists who follow.
Presented here is the “extended remix” from the 12″ single. A much longer mix with additional variations in the layers.
Always thought this one was a great jam, and I have lots of good memories with it playing throughout the rooms of places I’ve lived :)
